November is influenced by a late October new moon in Scorpio, a time to cut to the bone in order to stick to what’s important. We can figure how to incorporate what’s new and good into our life, if we’re willing to be ruthlessly honest. Act now to powerfully influence your own road, and work on something specific you want to develop or accomplish. There is no time like the present!
Teachers in disguise: They come in all manner of encounters—for instance, your friends take you to task, or some stranger wags his finger at you . . . entanglements with others are to be expected. What are you doing, what direction are you going? Omens to steer by abound.
It’s what they do, not what they say: How do you like the people you’re with? Are they trustworthy? No? Then move on. You haven’t found your people.
Personal growth patterns: There can still be something taking up space, something like dead weight in your world, although much of it is green with new things growing. However, what is outdated in you will come to the surface. Scorpio has strong backing from activated, fiery Mars, and its spirit is determined to snip and prune at dead weight with force. “Let it roll,” let Nature move through you as the forces aid closure, purification, and energy flow.
Firebrands, entrepreneurs, and creators of your own destiny: “As above, so below.” Look to the movement of Jupiter in November as a signal for times to come: Mars in Virgo is trine Jupiter in Taurus November 16th, meaning “New forms, well planned, can take hold!”
True love has Godspeed. (What you love can materialize quickly.) Something new in the atmosphere is the Holy Spirit of Speed. Everything changes when it speeds up. The spirit of Speed was like an excited artist involved in creating some evolutionary leap in mankind. In the lives of individuals, it seems as if more miracles are happening, and lots of people get free of things way faster than they thought they would. Maybe this is what happens before an evolutionary leap in our consciousness.
“Speed is free to re-create
within open minds and willing hearts”
—all coming from love
and not dark thoughts—
“We succeed! We succeed”
and it’s been a long time.
Holiday hazards: Right on Thanksgiving, Mercury goes retrograde in Sagittarius, which warns, “Think before you speak!” (Think: “Peace is power, peace is power . . . ”) A few hours later there’s a new moon solar eclipse in Sagittarius, a sign that it’s a good year to create new traditions based on current ideals.
